SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE? In N.Y., Josh Kosman reports the Dodgers have to “fork over” $1.9B in revenue-sharing payments to MLB “over the 25-year term of its media rights deal with Time Warner Cable -- 63 percent more than it had expected.” Dodgers Owner Guggenheim Baseball Management “expected to pay” $1.19B in revenue-sharing payments for the TWC deal involving the team’s RSN, SportsNet LA. The $1.9B in payments -- $41M in ’14, $48M in ’15 and 4% annual increases after -- “will leave the owners about $710 million lighter” (N.Y. POST, 3/7).

Hyde: "Start with the trainers and weight-room people who spend more time with the players than anyone. Build trust and relationships inside the walls" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 3/7).
